Before becoming a consultant, I worked 12 years for a 14-hospital organization in Indiana.
I was fortunate to be a part of a place where leadership valued their employees’ growth and set them up for success. Throughout the years, I became certified in several Epic applications, became a team lead, and dipped my toes into project management.
Let me take a step back. After college, my husband and I moved back home and started a life together. We bought a house, had a kid, were rooted, and everything was “perfect.” But through the years, my husband became increasingly stir-crazy. He had lived in the same place his whole life and set on a mission to move somewhere – anywhere! – else. Once I stopped being scared of moving and started thinking about the possibility, I realized that there were so many exciting opportunities that awaited us if we were brave enough to jump. Once I (finally) got on board, we started our search for employment possibilities elsewhere.
